Chaya Czernowin's Immaterial Premiered by the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart
Feb. 16, 2022
The Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart gave the world premiere performance of Chaya Czernowin's Immaterial on February 2 at the Theaterhaus in Stuttgart as part of the ECLAT Festival Neue Musik Stuttgart. The composer describes her new work:
"Immaterial is the third panel of the triptych Vena and consists of the two parts: "A book of Madrigals" and "Intermezzos and Sound Theatre." The piece is an attempt to discover what happens when the voice is released from its agency. What happens when the voice is a sound, or an essence of an emotion or a color, a movement, a line. The main part of Immaterial is the imagined, immaterial sound theater. The sensorial drama of the madrigals will become a wordless / storyless theater where pure sensations and modulations between sensory perceptions from visual sound to felt sound, create a provocation where the listeners are to become their own storytellers."
